Unemployment Benefit Update

Check out the step-by-step tutorial on how to apply for Unemployment Benefits or click below to get started!

If an individual has been laid off or experienced a reduction in work hours, they should apply for unemployment benefits with the Texas Workforce Commission. Our local offices do not process claims for unemployment, but we do have staff available to assist with setting up a WorkInTexas.com account or job searching.

COVID-19 Update: If you have been laid off or lost wages due to the impact of COVID-19, please contact our Rapid Response Unit at layoff@workforcesystem.org, and include your name and phone number in the email or use the button below to notify us of a layoff and a staff member will contact you.
